The University of Florida will spend $30 million over the next five years to provide safer access to campus buildings.
The plan will also include the addition of more than 1,700 surveillance cameras on campus, as well as license plate readers located at about 20 campus entry locations.
The campus has more than 1,500 street lights, and there are 900 surveillance cameras currently in use, in addition to 2,400 access control card readers on 116 buildings on campus.

In addition, UF will construct a new $20 million University police department facility, separate from the spending of the security plan.
